Through subsequent conversations, I set out to determine what elements define a grisette and what its relationship is, stylistically, to saisons. So this is the Wiki answer- A  grisette  is a variety of  beer  originating from the mining regions along the border of France and Belgium. It is a close relative of other  farmhouse ales  of the region including  saisons  and  bières de garde , though unlike those beers, which were prevalent among agricultural workers, grisettes were consumed primarily by miners. The name, which means "little grey one", may come from the name of the local grey-colored stone or from the grey frocks worn by the women who served the beer in local pubs.

From the Alps to the Andes Chicken and Rice has been and will continue to be a staple dish for most people all across the world. It crosses almost every border and religious practice from huts to Michelin Star restaurants. Chicken and rice has had a rooted history and an uncertain future.

Thought to have been domesticated from the jungles of Asia around 2000 B.C. there are literally hundreds of breeds of these pea sized brain creatures in the world today. France alone has over 50 breeds of their own! By far the most widely used breed is the broiler. a bird that can achieve a 5 pound market weight in 5 weeks, an unthinkable achievement 40 years ag

We walked into the Calabria Pork Store with a vegetarian in tow, and the aroma drove her out on to the sidewalk. Yet, the olfactory fumes were like the lavender fields of Grasse to us lovers of Italian meats. The Calabria Pork Store brought back memories of shops in Catanzaro, and the ultimate charm of boutique food shops reminiscent of Europe and disappearing in America. We bought some salami and shouted "grazie." May the Calabria Pork Store live forever.
